Trainee Interview

Trainee

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 7 weeks - interviewed at Nestlé.

Interview Details – First interview was online, via a program where they recorded me answering 10 questions (timed, approx. 1-2 min answer for each question). Then I was invited for a Skype interview with the line manager who told me more about the position. This took about 40 min, after that I was asked several questions (e.g. follow up on my answer from the first interview). Original 45 min skype interview ended up taking about 60 min.
People I had contact with were ok. What I found rude was not answering my questions. I mailed twice during this process to ask when to expect their decision, but no reply at all until my second invitation (sent to me a few day in advance) and final e-mail (sent to me about 1.5 weeks after I emailed them). Also no feedback/reply at all, even when clearly stating they will be available for further questions and feedback.

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Nestlé in January 2014.

Interview Details – 4 interviews with different people. Asked for skills that weren't in the job offer i applied for. Overall a good experience but they could improve the process time. People were nice and open. The interview was kind of difficult as they made behavioral questions mixing languages, and that was a hard point for me.
